Course description

Even with the most thorough testing of a security infrastructure, at some point there will be problems. You may be able to stop them as they occur and before they cause any damage, or you may have to deal with investigation of an incident that you were unable to stop. At all times, having good security intelligence will help you keep your systems secure or make them secure again.

Deploy a Security Intelligence Collection and Analysis PlatformDuration: 22:21

Most systems collect information in log files that can be used to identify unusual, suspicious or malicious activity. Developing an automated system, such as an IDS, IPS or SIEM to analyze this information is a critical step in intelligence gathering.

Collect Data from Network-Based Intelligence SourcesDuration: 11:02

Switches, routers and other network device logs and traffic analysis can identify threats and intrusions.

Collect Data from Host-Based Intelligence SourcesDuration: 10:34

Server and workstation logs can also provide intelligence that can be used to identify TTPs and IOCs.
